Siri Always Ready on your Jailbroken iPhone

Siri has been one of the most important differentiating features of the new iPhone 4S (even though it could easily be allowed on the iPhone 4 and 3GS), and while still in "beta" and with limited usefulness in other countries, it has been transforming our habits.

Things like setting reminders, appointments, setting alarms, doing conversions, and lots more - that could be done before with a bunch of swipes and touches, can now be done instantly via voice. And it makes us wonder... wouldn't it be nice if it were always listening so that it didn't require the initial Siri button press?

If you have a jailbroken iPhone... you can, thanks to this Hands-Free Control.

This mod allows you to have your iPhone always listening, and enable Siri as soon as you say her name. Sure it will have an adverse impact on the battery life, but hopefully, in the future, this sort of thing will be handled by low power cores that can perform these actions more efficiently, and make voice commands really "full-voice" without the need for any physical start up action.
